Description of key information

Despite the absence of specific toxicokinetic data from animal testing on the metal, the fact that chromium is present is food and is considered an essential element for metabolism suggests that mechanisms exist for absorption, distribution and excretion and that the metal is not accumulative

Citric acid and associated salts are found in many foods and are formed in cells as a metabolite from glycolysis. There is no toxicity threshold for repeated exposure in humans

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Bioaccumulation potential:
no bioaccumulation potential
